Guam - Island mayors will meet with members of the Calvo Administration this week to discuss a myriad of concerns they have from road repairs and closures to stray dogs and roadkill. Village leaders are anxious to discuss their concerns with officials from Public Works and the Department of Agriculture.
Umatac mayor Dean Sanchez recently expressed concerns about DPW's recent decision to implement certain policies with regard to road closures in the villages that require permits. He said, "Is there policy change and when I ask her to assist me, she said no mayor it's up to you to get the permit. I said wait a minute I don't even know where to go. You're the DPW director. You're the one with the heavy equipment; you're the one I'm asking for assistance, direct me how to go about doing this."
Mayor Sanchez's concerns - as well as those of the island's other mayors - are expected to be addressed during the DPW and Department of Agriculture roundtable on Thursday, May 12 at the Governor's Cabinet Room.
